Patriotic Pick for March 2022
“Lincoln in American Memory”
by Merrill D. Peterson
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Michael F. Bishop, a board member of the Abraham Lincoln Institute and former director of the National Churchill Leadership Center (NCLC) and executive director of the International Churchill Society:
Lincoln in American Memory by Merrill D. Peterson. Renowned Lincoln scholar and author Harold Holzer calls this 1994 work “a highly original, exhaustively researched, expertly organized, and surpassingly entertaining book…[it is] a gripping look not only into history but into the making of history.”
